Twin sisters, Sonia and Miriam Albert-Sobrino, explore transitory states of being through their film installation On the Margins of Metaxy. This is an immersive and contemplative experience, which allows the viewer to feel as though they are within the scenes projected, distorted, and reflected on multiple screens. The imagery of blinking eyes, reaching arms, and slow walks within water allude to lingering in a state of liminality and waiting to see what one might learn about oneself in the in-between.
Sonia and Miriam Albert-Sobrino (together known as the Also Sisters) left their home country of Spain in 2011 to pursue film in the United States. Since then, the Also Sisters have directed a number of films with selections at major film festivals such as Sitges, Edinburgh, Raindance, Cinespaña, and Chicago Underground. The Also Sisters are both Assistant Professors at the University of Utah’s Film and Media Arts Department.
